Popular micro-blogging platform Twitter, which is now called X, will allow blue tick users to download videos shared by other subscribers. All new videos on the social media platform will be eligible for downloads.
Elon Musk-owned social media company has updated a Help Center article titled “How to share and watch videos on Twitter.” In this update, the company confirmed that Blue subscribers can now download videos.
Twitter has introduced an age limit for video downloads on its platform. Users under the age of 18 will not have access to the download option. Additionally, if a video uploader prohibits downloads, others won’t be able to download it. Private accounts with
Twitter Blue subscription won’t allow users to view or download videos unless permitted by the paid subscriber. Users with a paid subscription can selectively enable video downloads, but the process to disable downloads for individual tweets was not specified in the company’s update.
Twitter recently introduced a feature that allows Twitter Blue users to upload videos up to two hours long. However, this has caused some issues for the company as some users have uploaded entire movies on the platform. This can potentially lead to legal issues for Twitter if they don’t implement moderation capabilities to handle copyrighted materials.
In related news, Twitter (now X) is asking brands to spend at least $1,000 per month on ads in order to maintain their verified status — gold checkmark — on the microblogging platform. Starting August 7, advertisers who haven’t met certain spending thresholds will lose their official brand account verification, The Verge reported.
The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal. According to the report, to keep the gold checkmark indicating that the account belongs to a verified brand, brands must have spent at least $1,000 on ads in the previous 30 days or $6,000 in the previous 180 days.
